After enduring months of drought and heat, Yankton received its single biggest day of rain in more than four years Monday.

The city officially received 3.42 inches of rain, shattering the record of 1.95 inches recorded in 1923. It may also have marked the biggest rainfall total since the 2019 bomb cyclone, when Yankton recorded 2.79 inches on March 13 of that year. According to the National Weather Service, Monday's precipitation was the heaviest rainfall Yankton has recorded since July 20, 2018.
